When Seth MacFarlane called his new movie A Million Ways To Die In The West, this trailer suggests he wasn’t joking. Indeed on this evidence it’s difficult to see how anyone survived more than a few minutes back then.
It’s also just a juvenile and silly as you’d expect from the creator of Family Guy (and we don’t mean juvenile in a pejorative sense).
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Seth MacFarlane directs, produces, co-writes and plays the role of the cowardly sheep farmer Albert in A Million Ways to Die in the West. After Albert backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man. When a mysterious and beautiful woman rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love. But when her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge,the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.
‘Starring alongside MacFarlane are Oscar® winner Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman and Neil Patrick Harris. MacFarlane reunites many of the filmmakers behind Universal and MRC’s hit film Ted including Scott Stuber (Bluegrass Films) and Jason Clark who produce, and Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin who co-wrote the script.’
The films due out on May 30th. [Read more…]
